Hydrangeas
Hydrangeas are one of our best shrubs for color in shady spots.  The new varieties will bloom from
Spring to Fall.  The ph of our soil will determine if the flower color will be pink or blue.  Our soil here
is alkaline so they will be pink.  If you wish to have blue Hydrangeas you will need to acidify the soil.  
You can do this with a combination of
soil amendments and supplements.
Once you have planted your Hydrangeas remember they require plenty of water - "Hydra" is the
Latin word for water.
Plant them in a shady spot because they do not want more than a couple of hours of sunlight.
